The story of a people`s resistance told in "Budrus" The Electronic Intifada - Jimmy Johnson "Budrus is an event-based story without all but the most minimal character development, yet it still succeeds by compellingly capturing a moment.

Why Jordan is occupied by PalestiniansRobert Fisk - The Independent - Yet in the restaurant across the road, beneath equally old photographs of a pre-Israel Jerusalem, some very serious men are complaining that Jordan is in danger of becoming Palestine. They moan that 86,000 Palestinians have received Jordanian passports unconstitutionally since 2005, that too many Palestinians are now in the Jordanian government, that corruption and a rigid adherence to American-Israeli policies are laying the groundwork for Israel to expel the West Bank Palestinians across the Jordan River. They have no time for the Jordanian-Israeli peace agreement. 22/7/2010

He is in a cell by himself. He was simply thrown in by the security agents, the door locked, and left to suffer there all alone.

Life For Palestinians In Israel Is Complicated In Every Respect"Adri Nieuwhof - The Electronic Intifada - I think that life for us very complicated in every aspect. Everything is something you have to think about the whole time. If you go to the supermarket, the grocery or any shop, you wonder about the person selling the goods. Does he support my case? Does he hate me? Hate Arabs? On the one hand we feel part of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian nation. On the other hand our identity card is Israeli. We speak Hebrew. We know Israeli culture. Everything is very emotional. 15/7/2010
